Presence, In Through The Out Door, and Coda have been remastered for 2015 by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by companion audio comprised of previously unreleased music related to the original release.
The appropriately titled Coda was Led Zeppelin s final album of studio recordings. Released in 1982, it was comprised of eight unreleased tracks recorded between 1970 and 1978. It peaked at #6 on the album charts and has been certified platinum in the U.S.
The reissue campaign ends with a double-barrel blast of Led. Coda will be the only Led Zeppelin deluxe edition to include two companion discs, featuring 15 tracks recorded between 1968 and 1974. The oldest song in the collection is also perhaps the most interesting. The frenetic blues jam Sugar Mama was recorded in 1968 at Olympic Studios during sessions for the band s eponymous debut. The song was completed but never officially released until now. Baby Come On Home from the same session is also included in the set. Also included is the previously unreleased St. Tristan s Sword, a rollicking instrumental recorded during the Led Zeppelin III sessions in 1970.
Coda is available in the following formats:
Single CD Remastered original album. Coda will be packaged in a gatefold card wallet.
Deluxe Edition (3CD) Remastered album, plus two discs of unreleased companion audio.
Single LP Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl, packaged in a sleeve that replicates the LP s first pressing in exacting detail.

This deluxe edition might turn out to be the real treasure chest of them all, though, with the material on the two bonus discs. As with any newer version like this, previously unreleased songs are golden, and this contains several. “Sugar Mama” is a track from the recording session for their debut album. It's a fun, swinging rock 'n' roll song that, in my mind, would have fit right in on either of their first two albums. The instrumental “St. Tristan's Sword” was recorded for III. This one is 5½ minutes of hard rock jamming that sounds like it belongs on Zeppelin I or II. Just a fantastic inclusion. There's also an awesome rough mix of “When the Levee Breaks” called “If It Keeps On Raining.” It's a stark, stripped down version of what would end up on IV, with a very different subdued vocal by Plant, the guitars lower in the mix, and a crawling bass line. This is one of my top three or four Zeppelin songs, so this early version is a real treat for me, and a truly interesting listen. Next up is the Bombay Orchestra version of “Four Sticks” called “Four Hands,” which now gets an official release, alongside “Friends” from the same session.
If all of this wasn't enough, you also get the bonus songs from the 1993 CD edition, which includes radio staples “Travelling Riverside Blues” from their '69 BBC session and “Hey Hey What Can I Do,” the classic B-side from the “Immigrant Song” single. ("White Summer/Black Mountain Side" is excluded, presumably because it appears on the Led Zeppelin I bonus disc, albeit a different live version than originally appeared on Coda.) There are also shorter, instrumental versions of "Poor Tom" and "Walter's Walk." Still not sold? How about an amazing alternate version of "In The Light" called "Everybody Makes It Through," which is closer to the album version than the one from the Physical Graffiti Deluxe Edition, but is still quite the variation, with different keyboard parts, vocals, and lyrics. It's just fantastic to listen to for me. These discs make up an incredibly fun listening experience, with such variety and so many oddities. It's an easy recommendation to any Zeppelin fan, and an easy five stars. A big thank you to Jimmy Page for this past year of new deluxe editions. I've thoroughly enjoyed them, and will continue to for years to come.
